Simamkele



Simamkele and his father in July 2012 as Simamkele went home for a short visit before his eyelid surgery scheduled for August at Charlotte Maxeke Hospital. Simamkele took a new bag with him with two big blankets and some toys. He enjoyed his recent trip to the Johannesburg Zoo and had lots of stories to share with his Dad.



Simamkele's surgery in June 2011 was delayed til Mid July because the hospital generators were under repair at Charlotte Maxeke Hospital and so there was no back up system if there was a power failure.

His uncle (left, in glasses) a civil engineer, came to visit him with his father (right) in June.

Simamkele enjoyed outings to the theatre, to Delta Park and even having some French lessons.



Simamkele enjoys making puzzles, May 2011.



Simamkele needs surgery around his eyes, nose and mouth. He is pictured here with his friends Karabo and Sthabile, in May 2011.







Simamkele had hand surgery on 21st July 2010 at the Baragwanath Hand Unit with Prof John Fleming.

Now he hopes for more improvement to his other scars.

Simamkele Hlanzela had hand surgery in July 2010. Now he needs ectropion scarring released on both eyes. A crescent of skin could be removed from behind one ear to ease the skin pulling at the top-left of his nose. His chin requires a fine Z-plasty with a very skilled surgeon.
